100 Days of Code
Present day: Round 1 of #100DaysOfCode challenge is now complete!
So what have I gotten out of this journey?
My plan was to learn JS, make my own sweet site, meet people and have fun.
I’ve come so far in JS that I now know more about what I don’t. Also I can actually make stuff!
I switched out my personal website. I went from a WordPress backend to Symfony. I also got a theme going: “playful and professional”.
I’ve also come to really enjoy Twitter now that I’ve met so many fun devs, designers and other tech people.
So that is 3 out of 4 so far. The last one is: Did I have fun? Yes! Very much so.
Bonus is all of the following:
I’ve learned about design; colors, white space, typefaces and tools for mocking up a web design.
Committing myself to the 100DaysOfCode challenge on Twitter has been such a boost to my learning. I’ve been accountable to a whole community of passionate coders who are compassionate and funny. I'd recommend anyone that wants to get started with coding - no matter your current proficiency - to also join us at #100DaysOfCode at Twitter.
What do I want to learn more about next?
I have a penchant for Symfony for back end projects. My plan is to complete a track on Symfony 5 over at symfonycasts.com. This will get me more comfortable with Symfony and how to set up solid APIs with API-platform. Following that I’d like to complete the certification tracks over at freeCodeCamp.org; APIs and Microservices, and Information Security and Quality Assurance.
After having done 100 days of coding in a row I am in need of rest. I am going to take some time to read books and play games. Running will be the same as always: plenty!
In the words of a famous sage: “I’ll be back!”
